The Seattle Park District’s Maintaining Parks and Facilities funding initiative provides funding to improve Dog Off-Leash Areas (OLAs) throughout Seattle. This initiative provides $100,000 annually until 2020 and will improve existing off-leash areas through increased maintenance while providing updates to aging infrastructure. In 2016, we completed a capital plan for all OLAs, People, Dogs and Parks Plan.  This plan provides a scope and prioritization of projects.

The first four improvement projects were completed over the last two years at Magnuson Park, Genesee Park, Regrade Park and Woodland Park OLAs.
